Thanks … for sharing this beautiful uncommon herb..

Good one.
I don’t know how to differentiate Lysmachia from other genera of Primulaceae but one thing I definitely see here is flowers are axillary solitary and not in clusters or heads as in other genera


Lysimachia pyramidalis Wallich (Primulaceae) shot near Jeolikot, Uttarakhand.

I have to go to North India and Himalayas to observe so many of these plants. Thanks for sharing.

I found these tiny flowers on a slope near town. Could these be the Common Alplily?

I had seen these short plants with tiny white flowers last year too but could not find the correct ID. I have now the leaves, flowers and the seedpods for a better idea. I think this is L. pyramidalis. According to the FOI—the leaves are opposite at the base and become alternate above—is correct for this plant. Also the leaves are speckled with black spots underneath. Please advise.
